Headquartered in Schafisheim, Switzerland, Ferrum AG is the global market leader in the can closure business and a specialized niche provider of separation technologies. With the acquisition of Hiller GmbH, Germany, an international innovative specialist in the development and manufacture of decanter centrifuges, Ferrum is making significant progress in the separation technology business. CatCap advised the shareholders of the Hiller GmbH on the sale to Ferrum AG in successful cooperation with lawyer Michael Vilgertshofer from the law firm GRUB BRUGGER.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to write the next chapter in the history of Hiller GmbH within the Ferrum Group,” says Georg Hiller. “Ferrum is the ideal new owner. Both companies are pursuing the same high quality standards and strive to constantly differentiate themselves through innovation in the international markets.” Georg Hiller will remain with the company as CTO and can therefore devote his full attention to his passion, the further development of decanter centrifuges and the related processes.
